Please no revshare, no backend pay, no unpaid work! Thank you.
I do not do: collabs, requests, art trades.
I've only used it once, so my experience is a bit limited. from the 12 cents I get, DA takes 1 cent. I don't know how it scales, however.
I don't think that's accurate, since I did not move old content behind a paywall, the one piece (out of 635 free pieces) was designed specifically for sale.
Thanks, I appreciate it. We shall see.
Yeah, it's pretty unexpected, the only other time I had the same reaction from watchers was when I announced my Patreon account. (Yes, despite it being off-site, people got VERY angry!)
I'm not sure what you mean by reward? Maybe there's a better suited system that works for DA and suits its crowd? I would definitely be interested.
The new-stuff-hate is definitely real. I think just changing the theme colour would cause an uproar these days. x:
I think that's fair enough, I just wish people didn't direct their hatred towards the person who is just using a tool provided to them. Just like paying or not paying is your choice, monetising is the artist choice, and both should be respected.
